I realized the other day that my Kwikset kitchen door handle is suddenly loose. It used to spring back into position when pushed down or raised up, but now I need to manually bring it back to center so the door stays closed.
I thought it might just be that the screws holding the handle together were loose, but this didn't help at all when I tightened them.
I took the door handle apart. I've never seen the inside of a door handle, but it seems to me the spring might be broken. There's an extension of the spring (you'll see it in the closeup photo) on one side, but I am guessing there is supposed to be one on the other side, too.
Can someone please confirm or deny if I am right? Can I purchase a new spring, if so, or do I have to buy an entirely new handle?
